Just a quick entry.
I had opportunity to sit down with my current manager
(versus the new one coming in whenever that is going to officially take place)
and have a "discussion". I'm not going to sit around work and have all of these
issues unfolding before my eyes and not have anything to say about it. First off is the
temperament - that's what I called it and though that is normally an adjective to describe
the state of a dog's or other animal's ability to get along with who or whatever - I thought
the word very fitting for the dude coming in.
Because that guy has a short fuse (this was told to me twice in the last few days by a few
people), gets angry easily, has a mouth and will yell at workers. He AIN'T yelling at me,
not without consequences. My manager replied saying yes, and we are talking to him about
that. He used to be a heavy drinker but no more and he has calmed down quite a lot since
the days of his anger fits.
That did very little to reassure me and I brought up the fact that every time I say hi to the man,
he completely and utterly ignores me, and yes, he definitely hears me. Turns his head, stares
at me and moves on. My manager to a look on his face. Well, he's going to HAVE to be good
with EVERYONE, he states and I can only hope that I at least got it in the mix that this guy is
a potential problem so don't be shocked if it comes back to them after these changes are officially
implemented that this kind of behavior has started to occur.
Several people indicated they would not work for him - but usually that is all talk and no action.
Especially a couple of them that would have no other job prospects if they were to try and leave.
I have a MUCH different situation, I could easily find a new job today - that would be just anyhing
I could find type of job of course, if I wanted to. Finding a better job would take more time as I
would have to search them all out in this area and find the good ones and apply.
The second thing was the money situation. I brought that up to him again and he said he was going
to lunch today with the general manager and he would talk to him about it. I want to get this done
and over with - one way or the other - before the "new" manager takes over. He then went into asking
me what my goals are with the company? Would you like to take the warehouse manager';s position when Tony retires? Of course.
Well time's up. More later when I find out more info.
